  1. To me, the "R" sound is rather strange. When the letter "R" appears at the end of a word, I can hear a sound similar to the "sh" sound in English. However, the native speakers say it is wrong to pronounce in that way. They told me the "R" sound in Turkish is just like the "R" sound in English word "run", but what is that sound I'm hearing??? Also, sometimes they are pronouncing "R" into "L" sound (or I'm hearing it wrong again?)
  2. I've been learning Turkish for a while, but sometimes when I try translating something, I don't understand the grammar. If this isn't the right place to ask, please refer me to a suitable place. If not, would someone help explain the grammar in this sentence? Gözlerinde bir yol var ah geçsem mi çağırır beni What kinda suffix is sem in geçsem? Also, i get that çağırır is in aorist tense, but it doesn't make sense that the personal suffix would be ır as well.
  3. Apologies if these questions have appeared elsewhere: I searched and didn't see anything come up. I'm interested in going to Turkey to study the language, and I've seen reference to a specific visa type for that. I would appreciate if anyone could help me with the following questions: Is the visa to study Turkish considered a "Short Term" visa or "Student" visa? Does this change whether I have to apply online/at a consulate or in person/online? How long is the typical length of this visa, given that the courses will be booked monthly? I have seen that
  4. I keep reading the process is simple but then when it comes down to to going to places and getting all the stamps, some have suggested that you need a person who speaks and/or understands Turkish. How do i find someone like that if it is indeed a need?

  7. Hi there, I am new to this and have decided to join due to being in a relationship with a man in Turkey. I am English and live in England. Him and his family are Kurdish and I am looking to learn to speak Kurdish as I am going to meet his Mother and the rest of his family next month. I speak very very little/basic Turkish and understand even less. However, I would love to learn Kurdish as it shows to his family that their language and culture is important to me (I don’t want to be an ignorant English person, whereby everyone else must learn to speak English instead of me learning the
  8. Turks are known for their friendliness and close relationships, as well as their politeness and consideration of others. So they have certain "set phrases," which are used to express good wishes to you in various circumstances. Usually, the reply would be "teşekkür ederim" (teh-shek-kyur eh-deh-reem), which means "thank you," or "sağol" (sah-ol), which is a wish for life, but is also used to say "thank you." If a different reply is called for, it will be noted below. 1. When you sneeze, a Turk will say... "Çok yaşa!" (choke yah-shah), Meaning "a long life to you!" You would reply

  13. I've just applied for a residency permit under the new system, putting down "The ones to attend Turkish learning courses" as my reason as I hope to do so. However, under the documents I need to bring, it says I need "The document that shows the person has received education from an authorized institution or organization to give Turkish language courses," something I definitely don't have. At first I thought maybe I had made a mistake and mis-read the reason, but it definitely read 'attend' Turkish courses not 'give' them. Has anyone gone through anything similar? Or does anyone
  14. Hi everyone out there! I am Norwegian and my boyfriend, Mahmut, is Turkish. We have been together for a while now, and he is now in the army to do his time. He has been there now for 4 months and have left 8 months. I've come here because I was hoping if there is anyone that has been in a similar situation that could maybe help me with some advice and support on how to still keep my head up and basically hang on, because right now I am at a breaking point. The thing is that in April he was supposed to get a vacation time where we finally were gonna see each other again, and it's also

  19. Hello Everyone I would like to introduce myself,I am 25 years old born and raised in a super small town in Georgia. I am new to this forum and I have recently started dating a Turkish man and some things have been a little on the too good to be true side of things with him and I need to insight and some advice. I've never dated anyone that was from another country before so this is all new to me. And I just want to protect myself if need be. So I will start from the beginning on how my relationship came about with my Turkish boyfriend... I just moved to California from a small southern town
  20. Hi everyone, it's been awhile since I logged in. Hope you're all well.

Do you know of anyone? Thanks a lot!
  21. Hi all I've read quite a few of these forums and thought I should just get my feelings out there! I have been going to Turkey all my life, every year in fact. I have family out there in Marmaris so i go with my family to visit them. Last year i decided i wanted to go for more than just the typical two week holiday. So i flew out by myself and stayed with my aunt for 2 and a half months. I didn't plan on meeting anyone I just wanted to go for a good time as i love Turkey, my uncle is Turkish and is too over protective and i knew meeting someone would be difficult. On my first night i went to

  23. I'd like to take some private language lessons in Istanbul with a professional teacher. How much should this cost? I've been in contact with one person, who's asking 60 TL/hour, which is about 27 USD or 20 Euros. Is this a reasonable amount (for a professional teacher, rather than someone with no training)?
  24. I'm trying to get my Turkish back (and keep it this time). In the course I'm taking it sometimes doesn't explain things well and there are two phrases I need to check: Geleceği sahi mi?: Does this mean "is he (she, it) really coming? Kalacakları iyi: Does this mean "their staying is good," in the sense that they are going to stay in the future? Kalmayacağınız iyi olmadı: Does this mean "that you were going to stay was not good?"
